Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Melasi
Crunchy, sweet, juicy apples! Most apple trees grow in an apple orchard. But how do they grow? A farmer plants tiny dark brown seeds in rows in his apple orchard. After four to eight years, the trees are old enough to grow apples. In the spring buds appear on the trees, and shortly after, they open into pink and white flowers. The flowers contain pollen which bees spread, and the apples begin to grow. Once summer comes, gases from the sunlight begin to help apples grow big and juicy. By fall, the apples are ripe and ready to be picked. In the winter, apple trees go to sleep to store energy for the spring. Other fruits that grow on trees are peaches, olives and avocados. The author did a great job of using pictures and words in these easy-to-read sentences, making this book a fun read. It will be an interesting book for children and parents to read together. The child can study the pictures, while the parent reads, or they can take turns reading and looking at the pictures. It's a great way to show children the wonders of how apples grow on trees. The colorful pictures are large and take up the page. Reviewer: Beverly Melasi
